Fundamentals of Property Tax Collection

This course focuses on law and practice governing the collection of county and municipal property taxes.

The course is designed to give tax collectors who have taken office in the last two or three years a grounding in the fundamentals of what is expected of them in the office. It is also useful both as a refresher course for more experienced collectors and as further training for other collection office personnel.

Students are strongly recommended to bring a copy of McLaughlin’s “Property Tax Collection Law” book, which is available for purchase HERE.
